I have never orientated to climate change and environmentalism, but I fully recognise it as a failure of imagination.

I mean, yeah - the point of the book was that people are bad at assessing the state of the world.

I know the sachets your talking about. They don't have fresh milk sitting there with the ketchup But neither do other coffeeshops.
I'm talking whats in the coffee they make behind the counter. As in if you order a white coffee, cappuccino, latte or whatever. I'd expect it to be made with fresh milk.
Why order an Americano then adding milk anyway? Why just just order a white coffee.

Not sure how it renders to running specifically. But it's benefit in sports generally is widely accepted. Most sports teams would be taking supplemental caffeine I believe.

Some info here;

Coz different people like different amounts of milk in their coffee. Also I don't buy the black coffee snobbery. Much of good food and drink is about combinations of flavours and coffee and milk/cream is a good combination as warm fat tastes good and milk brings the pH of the drink coffee back towards neutral making it taste less astringent.

We literally solved all those issues due to collective actions! Overfishing and deforestation all hugely addressed, albeit imperfectly. Society has a decent track record of sorting out its most pressing problems.

Oh yeah, that bit makes no sense. I guess its a virtue signal within the group that some of them have got a bit carried away with.

It is an absolute disaster in the making. I'm planning a house purchase partially based on not buying near a coastal area. Haven't put a lot of thought into it mind, but a small bit of thought. As in we'll buy a house in the next place we move to, so trying to plan that according, in part, based on national economic conditions and climate vulnerability.

There's a surprisingly amount of countries those dual factors automatically rule out.

Seems sensible enough given a house is probably a 100 year decision between being passed onto descendants in due course.

I'm not so sure people are stressing that much about it. Personally I stopped buying plastic bottles when I saw the ecological damage however my recycling leaves a lot to be desired. If we tackled the plastic poison at the least we will have done a measurable good for our planet.
Ditch the bottles lads.

Shakespeare knew a thing or two about the nags:

Quote:
What a long night is this! I will not change my
horse with any that treads but on four pasterns.
Ca, ha! he bounds from the earth, as if his
entrails were hairs; le cheval volant, the Pegasus,
chez les narines de feu! When I bestride him, I
soar, I am a hawk: he trots the air; the earth
sings when he touches it; the basest horn of his
hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
Quote:
He's of the colour of the nutmeg.
Quote:
And of the heat of the ginger. It is a beast for
Perseus: he is pure air and fire; and the dull
elements of earth and water never appear in him, but
only in Patient stillness while his rider mounts
him: he is indeed a horse; and all other jades you
may call beasts.
Quote:
Indeed, my lord, it is a most absolute and excellent horse.
If you scoop the 2019 IPB Cheltenham Tipping Comp, it can only be via the picking of the most absolute and excellent horses. Sign up today or there'll be more of this shite.

I wasn't saying there anything wrong with milk in coffee. I don't drink black coffee. I just meant order exactly what you want. Maybe there's not flexibility with options in Australia. 3/4 Cappuccino imo.
